Smart Chip Can Charge Phone in 10 Minutes

Everything has become smart: phones, tablets, GPS. Until today, batteries were missing from this list because of their lack of service life and false charging indications. But a team from NTU, Nanyang Technological University of Singapore, designed a smart chip for chargers that will optimize the charging process by controlling charge level. Instead of starting with constant current and then switching to constant voltage, the charger chooses the right thermocouple in order to protect the electrodes and avoid any risk of thermal runaway or explosion. According to Rachid Yazami, at the head of the team, the chip can charge a smartphone in less than 10 minutes. This chip could be embedded in almost all types of batteries and be used to charge electric cars.
